 Pigmentation Removal


Intense Pulsed Light Therapy, or better known as IPL Therapy is used for Hair Removal, but can also be used for Pigmentation  & Tattoo Removal, Red Vein & Vascular Birthmark removal, Acne & Pimples, Facial Rejuvenation and Collagen Stimulation.


IPL Pigmentation freckle and age spots Removal

IPL can effectively remove all kinds of skin pigmentation.

As we age, Sun exposure can lead to the development of small patches of permanent darker skin on the face, neck and back of the hands. Techniques such as dermabrasion, chemical peels and bleaching products will lessen their appearance; however these techniques can result in a reddening of the skin following treatment.
Intense pulsed light treatment removes pigmentation by stimulating renewal of the upper layers of skin from underneath, giving an effective and non-invasive alternative. The pulses of light are absorbed by the excess melanin, creating heat that destroys the uppermost pigmented skin cells, and the area is renewed after 10-14 days. The light pulse also stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, which improves firmness and overall texture, helping to over-come the effects of sun damage.
treatments are fast, allowing the whole area or multiple areas to be treated at each session. The light pulse is very short, causing only a mild sensation during treatment. With each treatment the pigmentation fades, with removal in 1 to 4 treatments .

The best results are seen on more visible pigmentation as dark spots selectively absorb the intense pulse light. More colour ensures better attraction, which breaks up the pigmentation, allowing it to be released from the skin.

Results are usually achieved in just 1–3 treatments…

During the procedure a brief pinching sensation will be felt. This is kept to a minimum due to the unique cooling system, which cools the skin to minus 5 degrees before the intense pulse light is emitted. After the treatment, clients may feel a diffused stinging, similar to sunburn. In the days that follow the spots will become darker and look like a small graze. It is important that you do not try to pick off the pigmentation, but let it fall off naturally. This will happen after a few weeks, revealing clear skin.

IPL makes your skin sensitive to the sunlight. Due to this you should wear SPF 30+ after any procedures using the IPL. Sunscreen also minimizes the formation of new pigmentation on the skin.

We cannot treat anyone who has known or reported the following unless a letter from your GP is available confirming that the medical condition(s) will not prevent treatment using intense pulsed light:

• Tanned skin (active tan) through sun exposure or tanning bed use in the previous 30 days (because of increased risk of hyper pigmentation). However, we are able to IPL dark skin types. If you would like to have an IPL treatment, you get quicker results the lighter the skin, so avoid tanning or even spray tanning on that area.

• IPL Hair Removal -Waxing, plucking, ‘sugaring’ or ‘threading’ depilation treatment of the area in the previous 4 – 6 weeks (because the follicle has been removed).

• Hypo pigmentation (e.g. Vitiligo).

• Any inflammatory skin condition e.g. eczema, active Herpes Simplex, etc. at the treatment site (because it may aggravate the condition).

• Skin cancer or any other cancer and / or who reports he/she is undertaking any cancer drug therapy (such as Ducabaxine, Fluorouracil, Methotrexate, etc).

• A history of Keloid scarring (because any IPL burn may produce a Keloid scar).

• Epilepsy (because repeated consecutive flashes may induce a fit).

• Using St John’s Wort (herbal remedy) in the past 3 months for depression (owing to photosensitivity).

• Who has oral Isotretinoin-Roaccutane or Tretinoin-Retin A in the previous 3 – 6 months for the treatment of acne or other dermatological conditions.

• Who is pregnant; until periods return and end of breast feeding (because

hormonal imbalance may reduce treatment effectiveness).

• Who takes drugs for diabetes (owing to possible photosensitivity and poor wound healing).

• Taking anti-coagulant drugs (e.g. for heart disease).

• Wearing a pacemaker unless the IPL or pacemaker manufacturer confirms in

writing that it is safe to treat the client wearing the pacemaker.

• Taking any topical medication (e.g. hydrocortisone) or wearing perfumes,deodorants, sun block, essential oils or other skin lotions (which could cause photosensitivity).

• Surgical metal pins or plates under the tissue to be treated.

• To be less than 18 years of age as our establishment is not registered to treat children with IPL.

A doctor’s letter will be required before treating clients who are reportedly using Quinidine, any anti-psychotic medication or large combinations of cardiac / diuretic drugs, topical steroid creams in the area to be treated, general anaesthesia in the IPL contraindications and photosensitizing medications vers 1.0 February 2009 last 3 months, local anaesthetic near treated areas in the past month or where you are uncertain about any reported medical condition or medication.

A doctor’s letter will be required for those clients who have reported a fake tan, suffering with allergies, has hormone abnormalities such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, has cold sores in the treatment area, has reported HIV or Hepatitis.

Transsexuals may be treated although results can vary and IPL treatment should follow 6 months after completion of hormone therapy.

Conditions that affect hormone levels such as thyroid conditions, oral steroids, hormonal therapy and polycystic ovaries can be treated but results may vary and realistic outcomes may be reduced or delayed.

Information on Drug-Induced Photosensitivity

There are many drugs and some herbal remedies available at the moment that can cause the skin to become very sensitive to light. Whether these drugs are taken by mouth or applied to the skin, a reaction can occur. This reaction is called ‘Drug-Induced Photosensitivity’. Therefore, it is very important that you read this information and notify the Operator of any drugs that you may be using.

Photosensitivity reactions can be divided into two groups:

Photo-Toxic Reactions - these are dose related and can be seen to a slight degree in people who are exposed to sunlight (presumed to be due to the UV component).

Photo-Allergic Reactions – these involve the immune system and may be similar to other allergic reactions, swelling, rashes and hives.

The drugs cause this reaction by absorbing either UV or visible radiation from sunlight or the Equipment light (which is in the visible part of the spectrum) that is delivered by IPL systems.

Types of Photosensitivity:

·         Abnormal and extreme sunburn

·         Stinging and burning

·         Vesicles- A small sac or cyst containing fluid or gas

·         Hives

·         Swelling

The degree of photo-sensitive response is also normally dose-related, so the higher the dose of a particular photosensitive drug (or herbal remedy such as St. John’s Wort), the greater the probability of a reaction and the greater the degree of skin response.
